High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Johnny Darrell (July 23, 1940 - October 7, 1997) was an American country music artist. Darrell was born in Hopewell, Alabama but grew up in Marietta, Georgia. After a stint in the army, he moved to Nashville and began managing a Holiday Inn near Music Row when he was discovered by Kelso Herstin, a producer working for United Artists, on the recommendation of Bobby Bare. In his recording career, Darrell established a trend of introducing lyrically adventurous songs that later became major hits for other artists.
